During the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs. Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2023 cricket match at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, Royal Challengers Bangalore batter Dinesh Karthik dives to reach the crease.

Dinesh Karthik, the wicketkeeper batsman for India, will play his final IPL match in the 2024 season, which starts on March 22. After the lucrative T20 league, he will decide to retire from international cricket.

With only two missing games in 16 seasons, the 38-year-old has participated in all 16 IPL tournaments since 2008, under contract with the Royal Challengers Bangalore.”This IPL 2024 season will be Dinesh Karthik’s final one. After the IPL, he will decide to retire from international cricket, a BCCI source with anonymity told PTI.
Karthik is one of the IPL’s most seasoned wicket-keeper hitters, having played for six different clubs.
He began his career in 2008 with the Delhi Daredevils (now the Capitals) and transferred to Kings XI Punjab in 2011. After playing for the Mumbai Indians for the next two seasons, he returned to Delhi in 2014, this time for a staggering Rs 12.5 crore.In 2018, he guided Kolkata to the IPL playoffs, and in 2019, the team finished sixth in the points standings.
Karthik was released by KKR ahead of the 2022 Indian Premier League, and RCB acquired him for a second time for Rs 5.5 crore. He was primarily a finisher for RCB, but he had an incredible 2022.
Karthik was a major factor in the RCB’s progress to the playoffs that season, scoring 330 runs at an average of 55 and a scorching strike rate of 183.33 in 16 games.Karthik was selected for the Indian team for the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup in Australia because of his run, but he did not perform up to par as Virat Kohli’s team lost to eventual winners England in the semifinals, eliminating them from contention.
By then, though, Karthik’s sharp, methodical style had also established him as a commentator.
The Tamil Nadu player had a respectable run at playing for the Indian team as well, given that he competed against MS Dhoni for the wicketkeeper batsman position.
After making his Test debut against Australia in 2004, he has participated in 26 matches, amassing 1025 runs, making 57 catches, and stumping six opponents. 2018 saw him play his final Test match.He scored 1752 runs in 94 matches during the ODIs.
